The One-dollar Prexie

Ten times airmail from Puerto Rico

The airmail rate to and from the United States and Puerto Rico was ten cents per half ounce from March 22, 1929 until January 15, 1945.

This cover was sent airmail from San Juan to Washington, DC at ten times the half-ounce rate in 1944. It is a bit bedraggled, as one might expect.
